Lovely neighborhood

The buildings are a delight to look at. The houses here are of overhanging construction, with each floor projecting a foot over the one below, saving both land and money.

I enjoyed seeing the historical homes and business on Rue Saint-Romain. It is a different world there. It is hard to explain about the town especially to Americans like myself who have not see many towns more than 400 years old much less more than thousands of years old.

We arrived by car, direct from a CDG pick-up and Monet pilgramage, and found that Rouen was not only ideally situated to then go onto Normandy and Bretagne, but a great little city in its own right. There are evidently lots of students in the town, which gives it a real buzz, but also fantastic medieval streetscapes, a great gothic... More

The 14th and 15th C architecture is well preserved and fascinating to see. One building has contained a restaurant for 500+ years. The cobble stone plaza is great and the area is filled with fantastic restaurants. Try mussels with Normandy cream. There is an inside market with many interesting food stores: sea food including shellfish and fish, cheeses, wines, beautiful... More

As with many other streets in Rouen the buildings offer a great insight into it's history with many timber framed shops and houses built up around narrow streets. The cobbled roads add to the sense of history and it is just a great City to visit and meander through the streets. Rue Saint-Romain is right alongside the Cathedral and can... More

This area around the Cathedral is pretty much the same as it was in medieval times ( I have old prints...I wasn't around then ). It is a pleasure just wandering around looking at the fantastically restored buildings.

This cobbled medieval street is near the grand Cathedral and takes you through the best of the old historic area. You'll pass multistory timbered Norman French houses, stores, boutiques, shops, restaurants and markets. Enjoy the very special ambiance of the area and imagine Monet being there at a cafe. ...

Apart from the horloge this street is an overcrowded shopping mall without many special shops. You can find most magasins in a lot of other places.
